CD Reviews

Great singles on a great compliation
Michael Gonsiska | 07/30/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Weddos took a beating for releasing a single-a-month from the music press, but this complition of the first 6 singles proves to everyone they rised to the challenge and prevailed. The first six songs are written by the Wedding Present, they are thrilling, load guitar rock. The extra joy of the CD is the songs they cover and how they interupt them. They range from Neil Young to Julie Cruise to The Monkees."
Wow, I'm surprised to see this here...
Yuri Kuzyk | Toronto, Ontario Canada | 11/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"And even more surprised to see some reviews...I think Gedge has crafted some amazing lyrics, best exemplified on "Blue Eyes" and "Three", in the typical boy-girl relationship breakup theme. I also really enjoy the jangly-guitar-with-feedback style of their music.This stands alone as one of the finer moments of early 90's angsty new-wave-alternative genres."
Wear your silver shorts today

(4 out of 5 stars)

"The issue here is not the source of the songs -- it's immaterial whether these are from "one single a month" or whether they were conceived whole-cloth. Critics tend to get bogged down in the backstory of albums.

Just put the CD in your player, press play, and listen. THEN judge. Simple!

You'll find songs that race along a little faster than Seamonsters, by turns sunnier or scrubbier (as befits a singles collection) than that pleasing dirge of an album. And there's a bunch of intriguing/oddball covers (Julee Cruise? Neil Young??), a few of which might even slip by casual listeners unnoticed.

This one is an ideal Wedding Present album for summer drives or late mornings, ably demonstrating the band's ability to have fun."
